Djokovic, Four matches to complete Calendar-year Grand Slam

Novak Djokovic moved within four matches of completing the first men’s singles calendar-year Grand Slam in 52 years on Saturday, rallying to beat Japan’s Kei Nishikori at the US Open.

Top-ranked Djokovic improved to 18-2 overall against Nishikori, taking his 17th consecutive victory in the rivalry by 6-7 (4/7), 6-3, 6-3, 6-2 at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

“I was very pleased with the focus,” Djokovic said. “Maybe at some points I wasn’t my best but I was determined and focused and that made the difference.”

The 34-year-old Serbian star advanced to a fourth-round matchup Monday against either 99th-ranked US wildcard Jenson Brooksby or Russian 21st seed Aslan Karatsev.

With a fourth career US Open trophy, Djokovic would complete the first men’s singles sweep of major titles in the same year since Rod Laver in 1969.

Djokovic also chases history in quest of his 21st career Grand Slam title, which would break the deadlock for the men’s record he shares with Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, both absent with injuries.

Djokovic, who briefly held all four Slam crowns at once after the 2016 French Open, also beat Nishikori in the Tokyo Olympic quarter-finals. Nishikori has not beaten Djokovic in seven years.

Nishikori broke in the third game on an errant Djokovic backhand but the Serb broke back to 4-4 when Nishikori netted a forehand. In the tie-breaker, Nishikori won the final three points, the last on a service winner.

“I don’t think I started off very well,” Djokovic said. “I was too passive. He was dictating the play. I was still trying to find the tempo. It took me a little bit of time to adjust to his game.”

Djokovic, who made 20 unforced errors in the opening set, broke for a 2-1 lead in the second on a backhand cross-court volley winner. He then saved five break points before holding in the fourth game and two more in the sixth before breaking in the ninth for the set when Nishkori sent a backhand wide.

In the third set, Djokovic fired a backhand winner to break for a 3-1 lead, sent a forehand wide to hand Nishikori a break in the seventh game then broke back on a netted Nishikori forehand and held to take the set.

In the fourth, Nishikori swatted a forehand long to hand Djokovic a break for a 3-2 lead and the world number one didn’t drop another game.

“Big credit to Kei, who played on a very high level,” Djokovic said. “He did surprise me with his level. He was quick. It was tough. Great fight from him.”

Wimbledon runner-up Matteo Barrettini, the Italian sixth seed, outlasted Ilya Ivashka of Belarus 6-7 (5/7), 6-2, 6-4, 2-6, 6-3 after three hours and 46 minutes to reach a last-16 match with 144th-ranked German qualifier Oscar Otte, who beat Italy’s Andreas Seppi 6-3, 6-4, 2-6, 7-5.

Ja Morant Broke Internet As He Promises To Gift His Grizzlies Teammates A…

Here’s a new example of why Ja Morant is a pass-first player on and off the floor.

The fourth-year Memphis Grizzlies point guard signed a record breaking contract extension this off-season.

One of his goals with that newfound wealth is to buy his teammates Rolex watches.

Morant’s contract is a five-year deal worth $193 million. The deal could become worth $231 million if Morant makes an All-NBA team this season.

DILLON BROOKS’ EFFICIENCYDillon Brooks knows he needs to be more efficient. The Grizzlies have a plan to address it

MEDIA TAKEAWAYSFive takeaway from Memphis Grizzlies media day: Santi Aldama, Ja Morant and more

“It’s just a matter of time,” Morant said of getting his teammates Rolex watches. “My bread got to kick in first. I’m still broke. Next year, when I get my money.”

Morant’s selflessness transitions to the court, too. He couldn’t name a player that’s surprised him through two practices because of how much he’s studying the game. Coaches and teammates have often raved about Morant’s gym-rat mentality.

Morant will sometimes be watching Desmond Bane’s highlights and text him with a compliment. This was also showcased in Morant’s YouTube series when he was watching film while on the sidelines at a Nike AAU game.

“I watch these guys probably more than they watch themselves,” Morant said. “Just to learn my teammates.”

Yes, even the rookies that don’t have NBA film yet.

“I study they college film and seeing where their spots at on the floor,” Morant added. “Now I know when I’m running the offense, where to put them exact guys at.”
Unselfishness, high I.Q. and work ethic are all attributes of a superstar player, and each has been exemplified by Morant.

Now that he’s an All-Star, second-team All-NBA player and one of the league’s top point guards, the next goal is a championship, he said.

“That’s all I got left to prove,” Morant said.

Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins has the challenge of unlocking every inch of Morant’s potential. The two came in together when Jenkins was hired and Morant was drafted in 2019.
